The Gouverneur steam laundry which for the past several years has been conducted \by Lawrence B. Parks in the old Gouverneur Union Academy brick building in John street, at the rear of the present Gouverneur Savings & Loan associa- tion, has been sold to Norris E. Marsh of this village. Mr. Marsh already has taken possession of the business. The sale was made through the H. C. Rogers agency. The sale recalled to older residents of the village and surrounding sec- tion the early history of the build- ing, which was erected as the first high school in Gouverneur. A history, prepared by Mrs. C. A. Parker and published in 1880, says this: \During the year of 1826, the ir- repressible desire for a high school or seminary, was gratified. The sub- ject had long agitated the gravest minds; parents were anxious for the future of their children, and having left homes where these privileges were enjoyed, they could be satis- fied with nothing lees in the new colony. Some there were unable to keep pace with the times, who were afraid of fostering feelings or arro- gance in the community by this up- ward movement. But in the words of another they lived to be ashamed of their fears and became the firmest supporters of the new institution. The people were still poor in purse. but privations had become familiar. and a judicious leader was all that was required to render the plan? feasible. The Baptist and Presbyter- ian churches were enclosed and a brick schoolhouse in course of erec- tion. Elwell E. Austin was contrac- tor for this building at $273. The masonry was done by Samuel Rounds^^find the carpenters were John Robertson and Levi Turner. The old clock dial was painted by a tnan named Haven, a cabinet maker then in town. That the work was done can be attested by a glance at the premises forty-six year? from the date of itp completion. After endur- . ing the battering? of teachers and scholars, the building is ftill in a good state of preservation, and hav- ing lately been sold ro Oliver Sprange Esq . he has fitted it up a* a grocery and dwelling, and the old birck walls have suli a comely look, -though pcnifvha; antiquated in style. \A s*tond ?t<\>ry was added to the original plan by private subscription. and by this mean.- mor* than f5\0 were raised, and late in the year the top of tb*- ei:rVe wa? devoted to acedemi< a*r-:rarM>. and called the Gonvern^ur t'nict.

Isaac Green was the ; second teacher of the institution, but it does not appear that he made it a ' paying affair, although the school prospered under his care. The room ' in the brick school house did not [ long prove adequate to the demand, and a second building was soon 1 thought necessary for the wants of the community. As in the proverb 'The wish is father to the thought,' so in Gouverneur. The want is ever realized.' In 1829 the Regents of the university were petitioned for a l share in the literature fund which ' was granted and has ever been a source of profirt to the school. In 1830 efforts were made to raise funds for a new and a larger build- i ing, which might accommodate a greater number of students and where more teachers might be pro- '• fitably employed. We can not better , inform our readers upon thiB matter than by quoting a brief history of , the school, kindly furnished for our use. from one of the earliest cata- logues in existence. This little doc- ument contains the names of 55 la- dies and 103 gentlemen, many of whom are among us fighting the bat- tles of life, ano> many, very many, have laid off the armor. The Aus- tins. Barnes and Bownes head the ladies' list. Of the gentlemen, quite a number are familiar to us all. Lor- en Austin. Erwin S. Barnes, Almond C. Barrel). F. M. Beardslee. Erastus Cole.
